Seeking Homestay Host for Female International Student (High School)
We are seeking a warm and welcoming homestay host family for a female international student from South Korea.
She has completed a year as an exchange student at a public high school in Minnesota, but she would like to return in Fall 2012.
She not only has experience attending an American high school, but she also has experience living with an American family.
She had a very good experience with her host parents, so she looks forward to doing another homestay with a family in Waukesha during the 2012-2013 school year.
She has plans to attend a private high school in the area as an 11th grader.
Since this is her first time attending a smaller, private high school, she hopes that her host family can help her get her footing in a new environment in an area of the U.S. with which she is completely unfamiliar.
Host families in our program are provide with monthly compensation for hosting our students.
We are offering a compensation fee of $800 per month, as we expect host families to accommodate our student with room, board, and transportation.
Transportation includes airport pick-up/drop-off, but in this case, it may also mean rides to/from school. School hours are from 7:25 am-2:39 pm.
Room means a fully-furnished bedroom that is solely for the student's occupation and use.
Board refers to hosts providing daily meals to the student. Since the school has a hot lunch program, she will buy lunch at school, but on weekends or when school is in session, lunch should be provided.

After reviewing your application, a coordinator may contact you directly in order to discuss further details.
